Haute Topics

ImageWinter has arrived along with signs of a pesky seasonal illness.

Sweating – over cold weather looks in your favorite mags.
Hot flashes - during tv commercials of sweater-clad models cavorting in snow.
A rash - of wool, long-sleeve, and fully-lined velvet dresses.

A dose of always island-appropriate style from HONOLULU Magazine’s new monthly section, HONOLULU Shops.

The first edition appears in the December issue of HONOLULU Magazine, which just arrived in stores. In the hands of two former Lei Chic editors, the fashion-forward pages pop with witty news and eye-catching photo features on the chic-est new lines, sweet shopping spots, local designers, and fun finds for everyone (yep, men too) right here in Hawaii.

Image This month your temperature will spike over bullet casing, skull, and studded jewelry by local designers. Feeling flush? Grab the fan-worthy rocker chic look from the 3.1 Phillip Lim tunic to the Salvatore Ferragamo booties. If your bank account isn’t feeling so hot, pounce on leopard-print accessories, collar the cool tees by a local men’s designer, and browse mod finds at vintage stores, adorable housewares for entertaining, or a step-by-step guide to buying runway looks at real life prices.

Take once a month and you won't need the tender gloving care.

ImageHONOLULU Magazine’s December issue is in bookstores and newsstands across the state right now.
